Sneak Peek into the First Emulex 10Gb Ethernet Summit at CRN XChange

Posted August 5th, 2011 by Shawn Pattock

It’s no secret that the 10Gb Ethernet (10GbE) market is taking off as the data center ecosystem continues to evolve. This is especially true among the core of networking, storage and service providers. The market opportunity for the channel is also significant and for this reason, we are kicking off our first Emulex 10GbE Summit in tandem with the XChange Americas Conference in Denver. The Emulex 10GbE Summit will be held August 9-10 in Denver at the Hyatt Regional/Denver Convention Center with more than 30 attendees. CRN XChange is from August 10 – 13.

We have some great presentations and roundtables planned for the 10GbE Summit and XChange. If you’re going to XChange and are a solution provider or VAR, we welcome you to join us at the Summit, or we hope to see you at XChange (we’re in booth #310).

Here’s a sneak peek at what we’re planning:

  • The Market Opportunity for 10GbE: There will be several sessions on day one focused on the opportunities for VARs selling Emulex 10GbE solutions, 10GbE cloud solution selling strategies, and several new opportunities with partners Nextenta and LSI.
  • Emulex 10GbE Solutions, Roadmap and Go to Market: Day two will feature several sessions on our 10GbE product portfolio, competitive differentiators, updates on the Emulex Connect Partner Program and Connect+ designation, sales cycle incentives and training.
  • XChange breakout session, iPads and demonstrations: Once the 10GbE Summit concludes, we’ll be at XChange in booth #310, raffling off an iPad, and participating in a boardroom session on Thursday at 2 pm. We hope you join us!

If you’re going to XChange, we hope to see you there. To contact us to learn more about Emulex or to hook up at the show, email reseller@emulex.com. And don’t forget to follow us @Emulex on Twitter for updates, pictures and more from the show.
